Salon and Barbershop Emergency Relief (SABER) Grant Program

Invitation only - applications will be emailed starting March 29, 2021.
The new Salons and Barbershop Emergency Relief (SABER) Grant Program, created by the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (CEO), will provide relief to Philadelphia businesses that have been heavily impacted by the pandemic: barbershops and hair salons in Philadelphia. This is a targeted and specific grant opportunity for Philadelphia salons and barber shops and is not open to the broader business community; it is invitation-only.


CEO and its partners selected businesses from applications to the Philadelphia COVID-19 Small Business Relief Fund and from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Statewide COVID-19 Small Business Assistance Program. To be eligible for a SABER grant, a business had to be located based in the city of Philadelphia and have an annual revenue of less than $250,000, with a focus on those located in Philadelphia zip codes with the highest poverty rates.

If you received an email notification for a potential grant award, you will be contacted by VestedIn or Entrepreneur Works, which are partnering with the City on this grant program. Please do not contact these organizations if you did not receive a notification of award, as this may slow down the process.
